Introduction

The official name of Gaotai Temple is Gaotai Shousheng Temple. After the death of Toyotomi Hideyoshi, his wife, the North Government Office, was built in the 11th year of Qing Dynasty. Later, the Sanjiang monk of Jianren Temple was invited to be the elder of the mountain, and the other is Gaotai Temple. The Gaotai Temple was built on the hill and was burned by fire. Only buildings such as the mountain hall are now preserved. The umbrella pavilion and the moon watching platform in the temple are famous scenic spots. In the spring and autumn, the night illumination of the cherry blossoms and red leaves of the Gaotai Temple is one of the highlights of Kyoto.
